This past year we celebrated the 24th Festival of Faiths with Sacred Cosmos: Faith & Science, looking at the “and” where faith AND science overlap and interact.

Our world views are shaped by the way we investigate and make sense of our surroundings, and helping us through this journey were guests including Cynthia Bourgeault — a modern-day mystic, Episcopal priest and writer — who led us in a centering morning prayer.

Workshops have been an ever-increasing part of our festival, and that was especially true in 2019, with sessions held by Toby Herzlich and the Biomimicry Institute. We also investigated the nature of human connection with Vivek Murthy, Alice Chen and Naweed Syed.
